DCI-Eco

16 Channel Multi-Format DCI Line System  |  4-8 Channel PAM4 DCI Line System

Easily upgrade DCI networks to meet growing capacity requirements with MPBC’s DCI-Eco Series line systems. These flexible, energy efficient and affordable single box solutions allow for transmission of up to 16 DWDM channels on a single fiber over distances up to 100km.

The Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) feature simplifies installation and maintenance by automatically adjusting all operating parameters at turn-up and self-adjusting during operation to ensure continuous optimized transmission performance.

With its ease of use, low latency and flexibility, the DCI-Eco is the natural choice for simple and cost effective DCI network upgrades.

 

 

DCI-Eco - 16 Channel Multi-Format DCI Line System

Future-proof your network with DCI-Eco 16ch MF

MPBC’s DCI Eco 16 channel Multi-Format DCI line system is a flexible and cost effective single box solution that will easily adapt to meet evolving capacity requirements. Its multi-protocol capability allows for co-propagation of up to 16 DWDM channels on a single fiber at PAM4 100G, 10G/40G NRZ and Coherent 100G modulation formats.

The DCI-Eco’s ease of use is unparalleled. Increase your network capacity in 3 simple steps:

  1. 1. Select your preferred transceiver

    2. Plug-in the transceiver to the DCI-Eco unit

    3. Let the ZTP do the rest!

At the push of a button, the ZTP automatically adjusts all operating parameters at turn-up and will self-adjust during operation to ensure continuous optimized transmission performance.

4-8 Channel PAM4 DCI Line System

MPB’s DCI-Eco series is a 1U single box solution with flexible configuration for Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications. This product line is designed to provide an integrated low noise amplification solution for C-band DWDM fiber optic links with up to 8x PAM4 100 G channels.

On the transmit side, the system is equipped with a MUX, an EDFA booster amplifier and an optional VOA.

Two MUX options are available based on the maximum number of channels to be deployed:

Max # of Channels Starting Channel Ending Channel
8 Channel Ch33 (193.30 THz) Ch40 (194.00 THz)
4 Channel Ch33 (193.30 THz) Ch36 (193.60 THz)

Features

Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP)

The DCI-Eco system is also designed with optional Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) capability which allows the system to automatically adjust all operating parameters without human intervention when turning up new links2. ZTP capability reduces potential human errors and saves time and resources when commissioning new links.

Interoperability Test Results

The DCI-Eco system has successfully passed long-term interoperability test with Inphi’s ColorZ PAM4 DWDM transceivers.

Long-term interoperability test results for 8 Channel system with ~75 km SMF-28 link.
